Norfolk Terrier mix

*MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hi there! My name is Tuffy and if a fun, playful little dude sounds like your dream dog, you could hit the jackpot with me! I am a 2-year-old, 30-pound scruffy terrier mix, and I would love a lifetime of adventures and play with the special family who will call me their own. I have billowy, snow white hair, and a happy smile that will knock you off your feet! I am a happy, active boy and will keep you entertained, for sure! My friends at Fetching Tails saved me after I was found as a stray and brought to Chicago Animal Care & Control. I was so happy to bust out of the shelter and know I was safe! I am a bit of an attention hog and love to receive affection from my humans now! I am an active fellow so I would love a fenced yard at my forever home where I can play ball and burn all my fun energy. When I am out of gas in the tank, I love to cuddle and receive pets from my people. Because of my play style, I would do best in a home with active adults; if you have kiddos, I would prefer them to be older (10+). I would also like to be your one-and-only canine companion; I like to think I am the king of the castle and don't like to share your attention with other four-legged buddies. I have such a big personality and so much love to give that we don't need any other furry friends, anyway! I am a very smart dog and learning more all the time. I have good house manners and am potty and crate trained (though I will bark when I first go in my crate because I would prefer to be out playing with you!) I have also been working on learning commands and manners with FTFs partner trainer so I can be the best version of myself possible. Since I am so smart but have more to learn, FTF will require my adopters to sign me up for training classes, which I am excited about! I love showing off how studious I am, and it will be a great bonding experience for us. More than anything, I want a fun-loving, active family who will give me all the love, attention, and playtime I never had in my previous life. Do you think that could be with you? Then please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails...I want to start our happily ever after together as soon as possible! Love, Tuffy If interested please fill out an application on our website at or if any questions please email us!
